Flight Explorer Pilot Edition Gives Private Aviators New Tool for Saving Time and Improving Safety
Alexandria, Va.– July 18, 2005 – General aviation pilots now have a new tool that will save them time and money when they are preparing to fly. The powerful features are available in a new product called Flight Explorer Pilot Edition, announced today by Flight Explorer, the world's most trusted and widely used provider of Internet-based, real-time global flight tracking information, reporting and display products.
Whether pilots want to see the weather along their planned route of flight; receive PDA or cell phone alerts of their preliminary flight plan route; view FAA delay information or textual METARs and TAFs for an airport of interest; or send automatic emails to people when they have departed or arrived, Flight Explorer Pilot Edition is for them. Flight Explorer Pilot Edition has all of the features of Flight Explorer’s best selling Flight Explorer Personal Edition as well as a 2km NEXRAD weather overlay; display of flight plans and actual routes flown; and alerts to PDAs and cell phones when the FAA releases the preliminary IFR flight plan routing. It also provides views of the most popular FAA-approved routes between airports.
Walt Kross, CEO of Flight Explorer, said, “Private pilots have the need for tools that will save them time and money. Accurate weather, instant alerts and data on routes all make for a safer and more enjoyable flying experience. Flight Explorer Pilot Edition gives them all of these features.”
Features carried over from Personal Edition include:
• The most updated arrival and departure times available from the FAA.
• Tracking of IFR commercial and general aviation flights in the US, Canada and New Zealand.
• Views of all air traffic or the ability to zoom in to one airport or just a single plane.
• Display of TFRs (Temporary Flight Restrictions) with text descriptions and SUAs (Special Use Airspaces).
